I think the full fight is on YouTube, or at least it was there a few months back. Ecklund was a tough journeyman/maybe fringe contender who had good boxing skills and instincts but not much of a punch, as I remembber him. He's an interesting character for sure.

I don't think SRL was hurt by Ecklund, BTW

It looks like a trip to me, though Ecklund did give a very good account of himself in that fight, especially since Leonard was far more seasoned against quality foes.

Dicky's style as a fighter was as unusual as his whole persona. The guy had a fine jab and good head movement, and his footwork was brilliantly unorthodox, almost reminding me of a welterweight Jersey Joe Walcott, although without the punch as someone else ahs said.

But the booze and crack completely ruined him before he could turn into a real contender.

No kd at all, just a slip. Didn't stop Eckland from posturing.

Yeah, I agree he was a good fighter.

For some reason, that other link won't work. It is a brutal knockout by Ecklund of Chris Clarke's brother. It's on the same site as the Chris Clarke fight.

Dickie Eckland reminds me of a poor Mayweather Senior in some spots.

SRL tripped, Eckland stepped over him and made his mark in history, nothing more.
